Biscuits, cakes, and sweets are high in phosphate content. Cholesterol deposits in the wall of arteries are increased following a higher phosphate diet. This leads to narrowing of the arteries, which is the cause of most heart attacks and strokes. Timothy J.A. Chico, from University of Sheffield (United Kingdom), and colleagues engaged an animal model and proved a causal connection between a high phosphate diet and atherosclerosis. Submitting that their research “demonstrates the importance of reducing phosphate levels in the human diet,” the researchers posit that: “These data indicate for the first time that controlling dietary phosphate intake may influence development of both atherosclerosis and the metabolic syndrome.”
